glad i wasn't the only one halucinating here! I've had problems with my 1st and reverse since when i got my car. My silly dealer couldn't seem to find the problem....that's not saying much because they only drove my car 2/10th's of a mile. I was beginning to suspect the clutch or synchro's....any ideas or is it just standard for 5spd subaru's? BTW, it's a LOT worse during the winter time. I was also thinking of flushing the Trannie & Differential Fluid...i've got 26k miles...it couldn't hurt?
